Writer’s Block

I am certain that my inability to write on days follows my
inability to sustain other energies. Sometimes one is just out of words. I am trying to finish my tale of a nun and a dragon which is suspended in my head, and just won’t conclude even as a thought. An ending is very important We owe the public a good ending to our tale after they have lingered so long over the world we built and the arguments we made.
One always knew in tragedy that the hero/heroine died.
Ending was never in doubt. Now our world is less certain. There is a relativity to any conclusion. As a writer one must wait until the clouds clear off to see if
conclusion is feast or famine to the reader.
Fairytales can just say “happily ever after” and we must take them at their word. Other writings are less easy to sum up.


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
